as soon as possible. we will be here for some time. with regard to the residence. mr. holmes lives at 1690 paris street. we responded up there fairly quickly after we identified him. our investigation determined that his apartment is booby-trapped with various incendiary and chemical devices and apparent trip wires. so we have an active and difficult scene there. it may be resolved in hours or days. we don't know how we are going to handle that. we have evacuated residents to a safe distance. it includes five buildings in the area being evacuated. we have been asked how many folks were in the theater. we can tell you there were four showings of the batman movie. all of them were sold out. we have interviewed close to 200 witnesses. as to how many people were in the theater, that's the best i can tell you. caution about social media. please, as responsible journalists, be careful. we are analyzing all social media that is out there about this event. i can tell you that we are already finding that there are a lot of pranks. there is even someone who called a national media station and repres

new developments from colorado. 24-year-old accused mass murderer james holmes made his first court appearance not long ago. it was our first time seeing the suspect since he allegedly killed 12 people and injured dozens more inside that aurora movie theater friday night. holmes showing no signs of emotion there during today's hearing. did he did look extremely desired and struggled to keep his eyes open. the hair died reddish orange. you might remember he told police he was the joker. he's currently in solitary confinement held without bond. all of this as prosecutors grapple with the decision of whether to pursue the death penalty. >> victims will be impacted by that decision in an enormous way for years. if the death penalty is sought, that's a very long process that impacts their lives. for years. and so they will want to have and well want to get their input before we make any kind of a decision on that. >> let's bring in mike taibbi outside the courthouse. good afternoon to you. >> reporter: hi, craig, how are you. >> what's the latest? >> reporter: i was inside the courtroom.

holmes spent months stockpiling thousands of bullets, head to toe ballistic gear without raising any red flags with authorities. and here's a situation regardless of party where one would think that both sides would be able to agree on rework the system. but yet there doesn't seem to be at this point any political will to do that. >> this has been the case for quite some time. and it is i agree surprising almost every time there is one of these incidents, we have another conversation about how there needs to be another conversation and then there isn't one. some will blame the nra which has worked very hard over the years obviously to hold elected officials to a certain standard. but the will is not there with the politicians themselves and i think to a certain extent with the public. just as every time some incident like this, there is a call for more gun control. you also hear a call for people to be able to arm themselves. and that's the direction really for the last two decade, less gun control, not more. >> let's talk about political will. here's a january gallup poll. it shows half

, washington, d.c. congresswoman eleanor norton holmes. thank you for your time. >> of course. >> this divide that's been reported with democrats, there are some democrats, chuck schumer, for example, and leader pelosi that says we should be talking about people that make over a million dollars. the point was made even if we were talking about people who made a million or better, the republicans wouldn't agree with that. with that to the side, where do you stand? >> well, i stand with the president. i think it makes a lot of sense to go straight at the middle class. i recognize that there are people above that who would be very glad to have some further tax cut but they've already had a great deal more than the middle class. but i think you should understand what this means and i think the public should understand. when they see democrats coming forward, some differing with others, that's the big tent that we need in the congress. if you have what we have with the republicans that people fear to be a part of a party except one that speaks with one voice you get the kind of polarization we hav

middle class and even beyond. >> representative eleanor holmes norton, thank you so much for your time. >>> let me bring in our panel today, keith boykon, and chip sals man, republican strategies. former mike huckabee campaign manager. chip, let me start off with you here. you you heard the president say slowest job growth in half a century. 98% of americans would benefit from a tax cut here. regarding small businesses, so many republicans say that small businesses are insecure. the president saying 97% of small businesses would get this tax cut, thus, they would not be affected because they do not make over $250,000. in a nutshell, did the tax cuts work over the 11 years? did it help the economy? >> well, i think it helped a little bit. i think we were in a bad economy all the way around. what i saw was president obama again refusing to take any credit for anything bad that's happened over the last three 1/2 years. we are in a she economy. i know the answer is not to raise taxes. i know he wants to go after those evil 1%. they pay a total of 10%. if you go further they pay 70%. i don'

police put evidence bags on his hands to preserve any gunshot residue, james holmes pretended the bags were puppets. police are searching for a motive and getting help from the fbi behavioral analysis unit. formal charges are coming monday but it will be months before he's arraigned and enters a plea of guilty, not guilty or as most expect not guilty by reason of insanity. we start with nbc's jay gray outside the century theater in aurora. jay, we are learning more about the suspect's bizarre behavior and his booby trapped apartment. what's the latest on both of those? >> reporter: s.e., let's break this down in a couple of ways. first the reaction from people here after that appearance. a lot of them are saying that this is all an ability, that this is building up to, as you have talked about, some insanity plea and it's frustrating for those survivors, those who have lived through this and this community that's been shattered here. a lot of people point to what investigators are finding inside the apa

drudge to put this on there if it wasn't the romney campaign? i ask you to put on your sherlock holmes act and figure this out for me. >> in politics at all levels there are people in the know and tell people they're in the know and leaking information and being sources and in washington unfortunately sometimes it's information that's the currency and so someone was dealing with bad information on this one. >> a.b., let me bring you in. drudge report points to this speech that condoleezza rice gave in utah at that retreat and apparently according to drudge she blew the socks off everyone and stole the show. with that said, you have the other argument out this was a trial balloon floated to distract from the questions regarding governor romney's tax returns and latest round of bain attacks, do you believe it's a ploy to distract and get off topic at the end of the week. >> timing is interesting. it was a tough day yesterday with the obama campaign accusing mitt romney of potentially being a felon which i would like to add i do not think he is. condy rice is not on the list of people who
